    Question conflicting messages with updates at log in

    hello

    After the gnome desktop is displayed a notification says there are sixteen updates ...but checking yast online update there are none ..package updater lists the updates ...which one is correct yast or package updater ?

    In settings / details -check for updates.. it reports " software is up to date "

    Open Suse Leap 42.1 Gnome 3.16.2

    Is it safe to update packages with package updater ?

    Yes.

    My bet is that the difference is between packages and patches - the
    updater, as I recall, installs both.

    Thank you for your reply ..it is a great relief to know i can safely use both Gnome Package Updater and YasT online update .Up to this.. Leap..version .I have always used KDE as default desktop . For us ... this is an excellent release .
